Devon mother is shocked to discover cattle staring at her through her living room window

A mother was left stunned when she awoke to find a cow staring into her living room window and another 50 trampling through her garden. 

Natasha Hooper, 39, was getting ready in her bathroom at her home in Sprayton, Devon, when her son Tyler Findlay, 13, told her, ‘there’s a cow looking through the window.’

At first she thought her son was just imagining things but was left gobsmacked to find the unwelcome guest had been joined by a whole herd.   

Footage shows the cattle making themselves at home in the garden and leaving a trail of destruction as they left manure all over the family’s lawn and driveway.

One nosy cow was even pictured ogling them through the living room window while others were queuing outside the property waiting to get in ‘as if it was a nightclub’.

Tyler and brother Mason Findlay, 12, were in fits of giggles watching the giant creatures take over their garden as Mrs Hooper’s husband Christopher tried to herd them out.

The adventurous cattle had escaped the farmer’s field after their morning milking, wandered up the road and surrounded the family’s home.

It took Mrs Hooper and her gardener almost five hours to clear up the cow mess, and she posted snaps of the cheeky cattle grazing to Facebook later that morning.

Stomach-churning moment ‘world’s biggest spider’ drags away frog for dinner in shocked man’s bathroom

THIS is the stomach-churning moment one of the world’s biggest spiders drags away an unfortunate frog for dinner in a shocked man’s bathroom.

Sujay Shah, 25, recorded the bizarre encounter at his home in Jalpaiguri, India, where he found the duo locked in a life-or-death struggle.

The science student and nature-lover was left stunned at the unusual spectacle.

“I was very happy and excited because I knew I was witnessing a relatively rare event of nature,” he said.

Jason Dunlop and Peter Jäger, arachnid experts from the Berlin Natural History Museum and the Senckenberg Research Institute respectively, agree it was a huntsman spider.

Dr Dunlop said: “In general, large spiders can and will eat small vertebrates like frogs, birds, mice, lizards and even snakes if they get the chance.

“Only the largest spiders do this with any regularity – and huntsman spiders can get quite big.

“But this doesn’t happen often – most spiders eat insects most of the time and none of them are specialist frog eaters.”

Huntsman spiders are renowned for their enormous size – up to a span of 30cm.

They live in warm tropical climates across the world in places such as Australasia, Asia, Africa, the Americas, and the Mediterranean Basin.

They are common in Australia but have been introduced accidentally to parts of the US, Pakistan, India, China, and Japan.
